Linksys Wireless Router :: EA2700 Disconnects After 30 Minutes Idle?
Dec 23, 2012
My new EA 2700 disconnects from the internet if the desktop is idle for more than 30 minutes. needs to be unplugged for a few minutes then it will reconnect. This is an unacceptable situation and this thing will be tossed if it cannot be fixed. Can this be reset so it won't disconnect? or do I need to replace it with a product from another company?
Did anyone use EA4500 with L2TP connection? I really don't know what to do. I bought this router because I wanted to setup my home network with really high quality up-todate and efficient router. Previously I used Dlink DIR685. Everything was OK but lately my ISP increased internet speed up to 40 megabit per second and Dlink can’t establish connection at a speed higher than 20 mbit/sec. So I bought the best router – I thought so. Router appeared to be rather powerful – the connection was established at a speed ~ 34 mbit/sec, wifi broadcast occurred to be also of high speed and long range. But the main and terrible problem is that the longest internet session for the last 10 days was about 30 minutes. And that is with "keep alive" setting activated. That is awful! My Dyn DNS service doesn’t have even enough time to update my new IP in its DNS base. Of course that is way I can’t get external access to my ftp most of the time. I believe that its firmware ver.2.0.37 is very raw. And there is no any firmware on Linksys site so I can’t neither reinstall firmware 2.0.37 nor downgrade to 2.0.36. Hope this bug will be corrected soon. May be that is defect of this specific router?
In one setup, we have fibre optic connection given by the ISP upto Distribution box inside the house where the fibre optic cable is connected to HUAWEI-ECHOLFIE HG865 terminal .From the RJ 45 port in that device , the ethernet cable goes to the DLINK 8 port switch. All the 8 ports are connected with ethernet cables to 8 rooms going concealed through the wall.
Our ISP person tested the connection by connecting one patch cable (from the DLINK SWITCH via the wall socket)to the WAN port of LINKSYS WRT300N wireless router and connecting other ethernet cable from the lan port of the router to the laptop ,setup the username ,password, encapsulation pppoe and configured the internet .found working. I tried to configure the wireless in the house by fixing LINKSYS access point in some rooms.
Here the problem started. I cannot fix the LINKSYS router inside the DB in front portion of the house since there is no space in that and cannot keep the linksys router outside also, So I kept the linksys router inside one room and tried by connecting cable from the wall socket to a 5 ports mini switch and from the mini switch I connected one cable to WAN PORT of the linksys router and one cable to linksys's lan port because I want to share the internet in all the rooms.
I have a problem where the complete home network disconnects whenever my computer reboots from idle state (either after leaving it for a while so it goes on sleep, or by putting it on sleep mode). It then takes a few (long) minutes for the network, and the internet access to it to reconnect. In the meantime ALL devices in the house (other laptops, ipads etc) lose connection too. It's only my computer which does this, so i'm assuming that there's something wrong with the settings on computer.
Not sure where the best place to drop this question. It is a DIR-601 router. I have it configured in the virtual servers list as; internal system ip, public port/private port both 23, protocal tcp with inbound filter, allow all and schedule set to always. I have a second system with a different public port. I can connect to either one but after a short amount of idle time it appears to just drop the connection.
I'm having a problem with my wireless internet connection. Just recently my roommates and I got cable internet and a wireless router for the house. Since connecting to the wireless router, it keeps on disconnecting me and then reconnecting once every 2 minutes about. The disconnection last for only 10 seconds but is very annoying and disrupts everything I'm doing on the internet. What is going on and how can I fix it?
I have been having this issue for the past one week where though i am able to connect to the internet through the wired lan without any problem when i connect it to my buffalo wzr - hp - ag300h router it disconnects within 5 minutes and on trying to check the internet connection DHCP server not detected error is shown. I have another edimax router and i tried to setup wireless with that router and have the same problem of disconnection after 5 minutes. [code]
I got a brand new Vizio Ultrabook CT14-A4 running Windows 8 64bit. The problem is that the wireless will disconnect every 10-15minutes for about 30 seconds and then reconnect. It will show full bars but say No internet access or Limited. If I try to reconnect it will say that it is unable to connect to this network. I updated Windows to the fullest and updated all my drivers including the one for Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network adapter. Nothing changed. It does this on every wifi I connect to. Including home, school, other people's houses, etc. My other computer running Windows Vista works just fine with all of these wifi networks. It only disconnects for 30 seconds to a minute, but it is irritating because it will interrupt my downloads, and time me out of any sensitive websites I was on like the bank or the University self-service website.

i m experiencing wireless disconnects every 5 or 10 minutes and all i have to do is too disconnect from the router in windows from Wireless connections panel , and reconnect and it ggets fixed for some time again . i got so frustrated that i changed to openwrt , the disconnection problem is gone but not getting the 150Mbps.
I have a strange situation on my guest wireless LAN.The guest WLAN is configured as an SSID "GUEST" on Cisco 1142 lightweight APs, with WiSM controller and WLC software version 220.127.116.11.
For simple Internet access using this SSID, we have a web policy, which causes a web page to be displayed when the user opens his/her browser, and on this web page, the user must click on an "Accept" button in order to accept the terms and conditions of use. Once the user accepts, the browser will then go to the web site which the user wishes to open. When using this mode of access, everything is fine.
However, there is also a pre-authentication ACL, which allows certain types of VPN traffic to reach the Internet without the user being required to accept terms and conditions. The ACL allows ESP, IKE (UDP/500), IKE over UDP (UDP/4500), DNS, HTTPS/SSL (TCP/443), DHCP client and server (UDP/67,68).The pre-auth ACL actually works as intended; and the ACL traffic is NOT allowed when the ACL is removed. This is exactly as it should be.
However, when using, for example, a VPN client such as the Cisco VPN client, or the Cisco AnyConnect client, via this guest SSID without user acceptance, the WLAN regularly and predictably stops passing traffic. This is 100% repeatable and predictable; it happens every 300 seconds, or possibly slightly longer. I have only used my PC clock to time it so the timing isn't all that accurate but I'm sure it's within a few seconds.
Given that the problem happens at the same time interval and is constant, I guessed there must be some configuration item which needs to be altered, but I've looked extensively at the controller GUI (we actually use WCS here) and I can't see anything that looks even remotely related to this.
My macbook keeps loosing it's wireless connection after being idle, when I start up I have to find my router and highlight it and connect and if it's idle it losers it's connection all the time.I tried resetting the router to default and started over I also tried every imaginable way of saving my password and connection but I can't find a way I've been into the routers security,trouble shooting,wireless, what's not holding it's connection to my MACBOOK? my iphone 5, ipad, and roku all hold
Recently I've been experiencing random disconnects.
My setup is a Actiontec Q1000 with (QAQ002-31.20L.4) modem/router that talks to qwest. Then I connect to a linksys router WRT54G2. I connect directly to the linksys router with an ethernet cable, but my family connects to it wirelessly.
I ran a constant ping to my modem and to google, and on the random disconnect, the Actiontec Q1000 gets a huge 4000ms response time (but then it resumes normally), and I get ping timeouts to google. Windows 7 will say "no internet connection available". Not sure if it makes a difference, but I had google timeout 4 times during my constant pings.
Nobody else is connected when it does this random disconnects, so I'm not sure what's causing it. I've tried a lot of things, from changing and flushing my dns, connecting directly to the modem, turning off QoS/firewall settings, but nothing seems to work.
it seems so far that everything other than AIM works out of the box with this router but within 5mins time AIM disconnects. I have tried the application filter and port forwarding but nothing seems to work.
I've been having this problem for a while now but something is coming up for which i require 24/7 internet connection with NO failures. problem: about 2 to 3 times a day i lose internet connection for about 1 to 2 minutes and after that everything is totally fine again. There are 5 lights on my modem in this order from top to bottom:
Internet: This light blinks green when im using it like downloading or playing something online. It stays green when i have internet but im not sending or recieving any data. DSL: always green. Wireless: I use wireless connection. its always blinking orange (i dont know why orange but it works fine) Ethernet: This light is always off cause i dont use cables. Power: always green.
What happens is that my DSL light which is supposed to be green. starts blinking. Then after 30 seconds or so it stops and just turns green again but my Internet light turns red. It stays red for about 1 to 2 minutes and then it turns green again and works fine again. Called the company many times but they dont detect anything because when we call, its always working fine. so all they tell me to do is reset the modem which does nothing. I never had this problem at my previous house 2 years ago. it just started at this address so it makes me think it is the line and not a computer/modem problem.
So lately I've been having this problem where my internet decides to stop working for about 5 seconds every half an hour or so which gets kind of annoying if i'm in the middle of an online game or anything else that requires an uninterrupted connection. When it occurs none of the lights on the modem change and all of the other computers connected to it do not disconnect, only my computer is disconnecting.
So far I have tried changing the ethernet cord, switching ports on the modem, updating all of my drivers, and going into the device manager to disable the cut power to device option on my ethernet card. but none of these seem to alleviate the problem.
My net connection is disconnecting every 30-45mins and this has been going on now for the past three weeks since I built my new PC.Here's what I've done to try to rectify this:
* Uninstalled/reinstalled Windows 7 (64-bit) * Called ISP (AOL), whose first and second-line tech support ran tests and couldn't find any problems with the line. * Changed the router (from a D-Link DSL2640-R to a Huawei EchoLife HG521 - both provided by ISP). * Replaced the Ethernet cable that connects the router to my PC. * Replaced the Rj11 cable that connects my router to the DSL filter. * Replaced both DSL filters in my house (I have two phones at seperate locations in my house). * Removed the bell wire from my telephone sockets. Whilst this didn't fix the disconection problem, it has increased my download speed from 130kbps to over 300kbps. * Uninstalled the ethernet network adapter and then installed the most up-to-date network adapter driver available. * Tried a couple of programs to optimize both my network and my PC to no avail. * Changed my Anti-virus software from AVG to Avast, but again, there's no fix. [code]
I can give is that every 5-10mins my internet cuts out for about 5 seconds, just long enough to kick me out of a game if I'm playing one.. so it's beyond frustrating. I use a toshiba laptop and it was recently reformatted. These stupid dcs used to happen before the reformat.. they'd happen one week then stop the next. after the reformat which was done (hopefully professionally) by geeksquad, infact they gave me a new hard drive too cause my old one heated up real fast, I was fine for a few months and now like a sickness it has strucken me again. So far it's been a week of nonstop disconnects every 5-10mins... it actually did stop for about 12hours today but I rebooted and then it started again.. so there IS a way to fix it, I just don't know what I did.I am 100% certain it's not my wireless connection, the same thing happens with an ethernet cord. the ipconfig flushdns stuff, and the netsh winsock reset stuff. also of course i've done various virus scans i'm fairly certain that's not the issue.
i got an ea2700 and i cant get the external to work internally which i need for server tests now this has worked before on every other router i had without any editing done but this one doest allow that so what can i do to make it work with this router?
I recently purchased an EA2700 to replace an old Belkin. I ran the set up CD and I am unable to establish an internet connection. I am able to connect to the router (both wired and wireless), ccess the settings, etc but cant reach the net. I've tried turning off the firewall, flushing the DNS, disabledthe IPv6. Did all the basic steps, resett the modem/router, etc...nothing. i hook the Belkin up and it connects just fine
I have EA2700 Router which support to be a dual-band wireless router and I am trying to connect to my router using 5 Ghz band with AE2500 Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter, I am only seeing 2.4 Ghz wireless band plus even if I manually enter my 5 Ghz SSID my network adapter still wouldn't work on 5 Ghz band. Is there any specific set up in order get 5 Ghz band to work?
My first issue with this device is when I try to untick NAT to disable it I lose my internet connection. This also disables access to router's address 192.168.1.1 forcing me to reset the device and set it up all over again. Why is this happening? I tried this at least five times with the same result. Second question I have is if the DHCP reservation is the right option if I want to forward ports for certain applications like Vuze? When the DHCP reservation window opens I see all my wireless devices in the list (laptop, phone) but not the main computer which is connected through ethernet port. But that is yet another problem.
I've got a cable modem, connection is set to Automatic DHCP and I all want is to disable all firewalls, NAT and other unnecessary protection that's slowing my internet speed, set up MAC address filtering, port forwarding and close this terrible software so I never have to see it or think about it ever again.
i have a EA2700 router and I'm connectied wirelessly to my PS3. If i am not hosting a game i will be lagging all over the place yet it says i have full connection to majority of games that i connect to. i paid 115 dollars for this router and am very dissapointed that its doing this. Also no there is no way for me to connect wired to the router it is to far away. Also i tried bringing my ps3 to my friends house and played on his wireless connection and it worked perfectly so its deffinetly my router.
EA2700v1 WPS-PIN using 5GHz does not work. This router includes WPS header in its 5GHz beacon and probe response but the router removes the WPS header from them once WPS-PIN starts. There is no problem with WPS-PIN using 2.4GHz.
I am not able to access the web interface of the router.No, i am not using cisco cloud or smartlink .. yes, it has the latest firmware (Ver.18.104.22.168982).Yes, I might be able to get to it if i shut down the router and turn it on again a few minutes later, but the problem is.. why? why do i have to interrupt connections and not have internet to log into the admin web interface of this device? Is there a known problem with it that makes the webservice go down?.. or to take extremely long to respond and thus the browser to quit on it throwing an error?
Just today i've started having problems with my Wireless Network. Other adapters in my area are causing me to get random disconnects every few minutes.I've tried changing the channel on my router several times, but to no avail. Is there anything else worth trying?
I have connected two dsl modems for extending wifi coverage,the main one is netgear and the extended on is D-link,but the problem is the d-links wireless disconnects every 5 minutes or so..i have connected a pc with a cable from this modem but there r no problems with pc internet...so is the hardware of modem faulty or is this due to inappropriate settings of modem,i have disabled the dhcp and changed the ip address already.
Every 25 minutes, sometimes sooner, sometimes later but usually on the dot I get limited access and the router interface becomes inaccessible for about 1-3 minutes. My problem is my room mate has left for the week and the router is locked in there. I am unable to connect hardwired or power cycle the router. I have the password for the connect and I just got the PW for the router interface. I also have remote capabilities. I have been trying many things to stop it from being so slow and unstable but basically even though my signal reception is 4-5 bars I am only averaging 11mbps speed. I am using a b/g alfa 1w adapter but this shouldn't be the cause of the slower speeds. I can only achieve 1-3mbps down on speedtest.net whereas before I was getting 6-12mbps down.
-UPnP Off. -NAT Firewall Open. -300mbps Max -Channel 1 no other channels within 5 channels near it. -WPA2-PSK [AES] -Default MAC Address -Automatic Configuring of all IP Addresses -MTU 1500 -WMM On.
Being limited by lack of power cycle and hardwired connect makes it a little harder. I know it's fixable without that though. Also there is no point of a hardwired connect unless I am upgrading the firmware (it already has the newest firmware by default) because I know it should work fine like that. I have tested connecting to other networks and I do not d/c on them. My own research has shown that setting a static IP resolves the issue. I am unfamiliar with exactly how to set this up for the router and the client and if it involves dealing with the ISP (Comcast)
I just recently purchased a D-Link 615 and i've been having disconnection issues with the internet. Every now and then the internet connection disconnects and i have to reboot the router to have internet access again.
